This is an Intermediate project.
This kit assumes you know how to make an 8 strand round Kumihimo braid with beads. Bead layout and basic instructions only - not a full tutorial.
Caps and clasp are NOT included but the crimpable hook and eye version is provided as an option for this kit and are so easy and quick! There are also many other caps and clasp choices available on this site or use something you already have.
Kit makes an 18" necklace (depending on caps and clasp used) and includes:
Size 8 Designer Seed Bead Mix; Swarovski 8mm Bicone Pendants; coordinating S-Lon cord; bead layout - not a full tutorial.
The layout is also available to purchase separately as an instant download but is included at no additional charge in this kit.

I ordered the aquamarine kit to make as a birthday present for my sister. It is a lovely, lovely necklace. I rated it 4 stars because I finished it absolutely according to the instructions but the finished piece was only 16.5" not 18". I realize that I may be braiding a bit tighter than some but all the other kits I have done from here have been the "correct" finished length. I wound up taking it completely apart and starting over and adding 8 beads total per cord (4 on each end). It was almost 18" at that point and I can just just use a hook and chain for the closure.
It is, however, a lovely piece when finished and I'm sure my sister will just love it!

You've done all the hard work, figuring out how many beads need to be strung. Thank you! This necklace turned out stunning. I can't wait for the compliments.
